Today’s NaPoWriMo’s Challenge: a “replacement” poem. Pick a common noun for a physical thing, for example, “desk” or “hat” or “bear,” and then pick one for something intangible, like “love” or “memories” or “aspiration.” Then Google your tangible noun, and find some sentences using it. Now, replace that tangible noun in those sentences with your intangible noun, and use those sentences to create (or inspire) a poem.
Instead of this poem, I wrote a poem for my brother whose birthday is tomorrow.
To Many More
It’s your birthday!
So just let me say…
You are the best brother ever
(Nor will we mention you are the only one, however)!
This must be number 46.
This is easy for me to predict
Since you and I were nearly twins,
But fortunately the older date I win
And also in age, height, and hair,
In all else, I declare…
It’s your birthday,
Today, you simply must rank
In looks, smarts, and humor, too!
Wishing you, all the day through…
A HaPpy Birthday.
May all great wishes come your way!
